Justin Koschitzke is a fortunate and wealthy young man. He’s lived his (and millions of others’) dream. This will be his footy epitaph.
“I can’t remember the last time I ran out and enjoyed playing a game of footy.
“Even when we were playing well and winning (it wasn’t fun).”
Andre Agassi had it all…..Grand Slams, fame and fortune. Yet in “Open”, his acclaimed autobiography, he confessed: “I play tennis for a living even though I hate tennis, hate it with a dark and secret passion and always have.”
What is the problem?
They are getting paid to play sport!
Fortunately I can think of some who buck the trend.
Lee Trevino seemed to embrace his fortune.
Brad Hogg is another who seems to savour every moment.
It is perplexing – even upsetting.
What has happened to the “Sport is fun” mantra – and who does or doesn’t subscribe?
